Russell Child Development Center is a community based not-for-profit organization. 

RCDC is the umbrella agency for seven early childhood programs in 19 Southwest Kansas counties.

I cherish the time spent with coworkers and the friendships I have developed over the last 26 years. I'm proud to have been a part of such a dedicated staff that provides such a valuable service to many

children and families in Southwest Kansas. Knowing that I may have been a part of a family or child's success has brought me the greatest joy. Whether it's a family enjoying mealtime because their child is now eating along with them, a child is running and playing with his siblings in the yard for the first time, or a child and parent is excited about going to preschool with peers their age-all of these are what I'm most proud of. It has been a privilege.
